Long-term Linux Mint: 19.3 release unchains the Gimp, adds HiDPI, is kind to your older, less-beefy kit

18.3 64 bit using Mate is fine on a 1G RAM Atom laptop and 18.3 32 bit Mate is fine on 1G RAM P4.

Some P4 laptops XP or Linux seriously outperforms one Atom I have running running Win 10 32 bit. Same Atom WILL run 64 bit Debian, but not 64 bit Win10, not enough RAM or Flash! There is a 32 bit EFI, so you need to edit the Linux Mint 64 bit ISO to add the 32 bit EFI files from Debian. At least the 18.3 and 19.1 Mint 64 bit can't install if the EFI of the 64 bit CPU is 32 bits.
